Today's Opinions

  • Looking ahead in the New Year

    As we ring in 2014, the House and Senate return to Washington for the start of the second session of the 113th Congress. Looking forward, it is abundantly clear that our nation has much to accomplish to tackle the challenges of today and ensure a prosperous future for generations to come. However, with a new year and a new session of Congress come new opportunities.

    Disturbed by
    column

        As a native of El Paso and a current resident of Bedford, I am deeply disturbed by Mike Forster’s column in the 12/25/13 edition of the Bedford Bulletin.

  • Plans

    By Steve Wilkerson
    District 3 Supervisor

        Greetings and the wish of a prosperous new year to everyone. 
        As I write this, the Monday morning forecast  is predicting temperatures in the low double digits.  I’m hoping that doesn’t cause any problems for anyone, myself included.  I’m also preparing to leave for a “New Supervisor’s Forum” in Richmond, hoping to return with a better skill set for serving you all.

  • Pope Francis is not a Marxist

        Let me preface this by reminding readers that I’m not Roman Catholic. I’m Anglican.

  • Great expectations?

    As 2014 gets underway, it’s time to hope that the workings of government—most notably at the federal level—get better.
        It certainly couldn’t get much worse than 2013, so expectations are somewhat low. For those in the White House and in Congress that’s good news; they have nowhere to go but up. At least that’s what you would think—we’ll have to see what happens.
        These aren’t the days of great expectations, but it is time to expect something of value from our elected leaders.

    Time to retake
    Government 101

        I am an OTR driver and away from home for long periods of time...my wife saves me the papers so that I can catch up on whats happening around the county when I return. I have just returned and have been reading up on ‘happenings’ and I am always amazed at the rantings of one particular person when it come to the Sheriff.

  • Ending empire: A vision for the future

    For a long time now, conservatives have been shouting “Benghazi, Benghazi” at the top of their lungs, asserting that the deaths there of the U.S. Ambassador and others represent a great crime of President Obama.
        Surely, they claim, the entire episode was the fault of an administration asleep at the wheel in the face of yet another Al Qaeda attack. They even allege a “cover-up” of the truth.
